Re: The Trump CT scanner

Vinny, he's a politician, so of course he's a liar. Which politician could you not say that about? The point about the CT scanner is one that has been made on this forum by many people already. After the Trump years, it's only too obvious that everyone in the establishment (media, academia, politici...

Re: The Trump CT scanner

I heard Victor Davis Hanson make the same analogy yesterday on his podcast, The Classicist, and I agree with him completely. VDH gets it that the establishment is completely against Trump, even though his accomplishments are many. VDH seems to me a serious thinker who is not a racist, showing that o...

Re: Do You Really, Really Want to Know What Trump Did That Was So Bad?

A new war will also give the Dems and the MSM a new focal point and a convenient excuse to finally lay off the Covid-1984 fearmongering. You guys are really jumping ahead here. And this is why this country is fucked. The man won't even take office for two months and his administration is already be...

Re: Do You Really, Really Want to Know What Trump Did That Was So Bad?

Nah. He's a neocon. Let's take a poll. I vote we are in a war with Iran within a year. I doubt it...but thta sounds better than a civil war between us. I feel quite the opposite. We shouldn't be the policeman for the world under any circumstances, but especially when we have so many of our own prob...

Re: Do You Really, Really Want to Know What Trump Did That Was So Bad?

As I recall, Trump launched a few missiles in Syria early on as a show of force, but then he just left it at that. He didn't try to use it as an excuse to broaden our footprint there. My point is that many of these so-called "emergencies" are likely manufactured excuses for the military-industrial c...

Do You Really, Really Want to Know What Trump Did That Was So Bad?

Here's what Trump did that was so bad: he didn't start any new wars in four years in office and existing wars were scaled back. This the military-industrial complex can't abide. This is why Trump faced non-stop demonization by the press. This is why former members of his administration (many of them...

If Biden wins, we're going to have Dumb and Dumber as our president and vice president.

Re: A great representative for the "party of inclusion and tolerance"

What is "the traditional way of life in the United States"? Vinny I think what is at the core of the traditional way of life in the U.S. is that if you work hard, you can succeed, no matter where you come from, the color of your skin, or any other irrelevant thing. This is why people from all over ...

Re: Should a nation have a culture? Can a nation have many of them?

As many have noted, for many of these liberals, these have ceased to be political issues and are now religious issues. They are engaging in cultish behavior. Reason and rationality have gone out the window. They see fascists behind every bush, even though true fascists are nowhere, but can't see tha...

Re: 700 Miles For Heartbreak: An Alberta Story

Smith1776, I've had my heart broken several times. It stinks. It's terrible. But life is a beautiful thing. Don't throw it away, Just to be alive and feel emotions is mind blowing. If you can find something in nature that you see as beautiful, that can be a great thing outside yourself to focus on. ...

Re: Should a nation have a culture? Can a nation have many of them?

Thanks, just ordered it from the library. A lot of good fiction is depressing, so it's nice to get leads on books that aren't. I did enjoy The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, which I heard about from you a few months ago. COVID-19 has been good for encouraging reading. I got through Atlas Shrugged. It was...

Re: Eight more years?

See, most people, even including Trump supporters, just like a fun catchy tune and lyrics. They couldn't care less if some perverts also like the same song. And of course everybody knows the song is by and for perverts. Trump's DJ knows for sure that the song doesn't bother any supporters. So they p...
